That stupid advertisement about taking out Saddam before Bush gets to him is messing up my mouse pointer. Whenever that ad is being displayed my mouse pointer flickers on and off. This isn't happening right now while I'm looking at the Verified by VISA ad and something that also goes along with Walegreens.com advertisement. Is this happening to anybody else?

If so please sign this petition to have the Saddam ad removed



well maybe not but still..:D

Hmm. My mouse pointer isn't affected, but my eyes are.

I've mentioned before that the ads I see here are of the lowest calibre of any of the sites I visit regularly. I don't know what the CPMs are on this crap but I doubt its worth the annoyance, and apparently they don't mind breaking pages to get their message across.

Huh, I usually look at most of the threads, and I didn't even notice that one. Sorry about that...
